Over the past few weeks, I’ve really been rekindling my love for 60’s style. I think as a blogger, sometimes it can be really difficult to stay true to your personal style, especially when there’s so many trends flying around, sometimes I do feel a little overwhelmed by it all and end up wearing outfits that I just don’t really feel ‘myself’ in if I’m quite honest.
From the second I started to purchase my own clothes and didn’t depend on the approval of my mother when it came to how I dressed myself, I was instantly drawn to the 60’s. The colours, the textures, the attitude, and music has always amazed me. I remember the day that I got my hair cut into a bob with a thick full fringe, and my Granddad told me I looked like I’d just walked out of the 60’s and I just thought I was the coolest thing ever. Now, I’m obviously a lot older and my full fringe has grown out, despite me loving it for about 3 years.
“YOU MAKE ME DIZZY MISS LIZZY, THE WAY YOU ROCK ‘N’ ROLL”
If you follow me on TWITTER and INSTAGRAM, you will know that I’m currently chilling on the Free People Me homepage (I am a bit overwhelmed by that) but Free People are a brand that I’ve forever loved and the fact that I’ve worked with them a good handful of times is a dream come true. I feel as though Free People are so different to any other brand. They truly represent that whole retro 60’s/70’s vibes with a modern twist of course. Their items are truly unique and you just wouldn’t find pieces like theirs anywhere else!
I was kindly gifted this beautiful navy shift dress by the lovely FP team, it instantly transported me back to the days when my life goal was to somehow time travel back to the 60’s and live like a mod for the day! I find 60’s silhouettes so flattering on my body shape, therefore I always feel great – Which I think sometimes I let trends overshadow what actually suits me and looks good on me. The whole A-line shift dress is actually really flattering on a lot of body shapes, I personally pretty much do not have a body shape, I’m basically like a ruler, I find that the shift dress style creates a really chic silhouette, and glides past any lumps and bumps that you may have. It’s the kind of dress that you can eat a whole pizza in and not feel too guilty basically.
